    Looking for some type of brackets to use in mounting boxes (small, ammo can sized) to the bed rails. I already have T-nuts to slide into the rails. Just need some type of brackets that would be used to support or mount storage boxes to.
    Looked at the Rago brackets, but just haven't found what I am looking for.
    Would like to get the boxes mounted up in the forward corners of the bed nearest the cab.
    Maybe some heavier L-shaped brackets.
    May have to fabricate what I really want, but looking for ideas on anything available already.
    TIA.

    I’ve got T-nuts too and have been looking for something to mount ax, shovel and recovery boards.

    If I get a winch on my 2WD, can I overland with the BASTRDs and SGU?!
    Hey, @First World Problems Fab , I don't know how much longer I can pimp your potential, Buddy!

    Any chance you want to get going on some Tundra fab? There are hundreds of us that would buy your shizzle....

    Been looking at those too, since they are a forum vendor.

    Yes i have a couple mounts that work on the tundra platform currently...

    http://firstworldproblemsfab.com/item/head-rail-roto-pax-mounts

    both the tacoma and tundra have flad head boards in the bed so these 3 mounts work with both.

    http://firstworldproblemsfab.com/item/bed-rail-tab-single

    These can be used for additional tie down points or if you want to mount a LED pod you can flip them over and mount your pods.

    And they are pretty strong too.

    I also have a set of corner mounts that i just released that will also work. They can be used as additional tie down points, and there is a hole that can be used as a CB / LED pod mount.

    I need to get some decent photos of them so i can put them up on the site.

    Also what is it that you guys are trying to mount? Are you looking specifically for stuff you can use on the side rails more than the head rails?

    Yes. I tagged you because I've followed you since your introduction post, so when I see members looking for ways to mount Anything to the OEM side rails, I remember you were gonna look into it, and that another member not too far from you offfered to meet up with his Tundra. I read all over this thread, so I see guys asking about solutions all the time. Figured I'd tag you to see how it's comin', whether you were able to work out that your side rail mounts for Tacoma work for Tundra.

    P.S. Thanks for checking in. I hope all is well!

    Yeah i just need to take some cardboard so i can mock up a design and get some measurements. And meeting up with people is like trying to meet up with people from dating sites. You can talk all day long but when i comes to actually meeting up its like pulling teeth from a wild boar. haha.

    The only way i was able to verify that my mounts work is because i went to a public event and happened to see a tundra with bed rails and i happened to have my mounts in the truck.

    What I really want are MOLLE panels for inside the bed sides. Something that will mount below the factory bed rails, under and closer to the inside sidewall, and not flush with the bed rails.
